Long Beach is just one of the many rugged and spectacular beaches found within Pacific Rim National Park. Pacific Rim National Park offers both outdoor and indoor educational programs, an interpretive centre at Wickaninnish Beach, and excellent hiking through rainforests and along along its many scenic beaches. You could spend days in just the Long Beach portion of the park, exploring tide pools and watching the surf, then take a voyage into the famous Broken Group Islands Unit to visit an archipelago of islands that will leave a life long impression in your memory.
Wildlife also abounds around Ucluelet and on Long Beach itself. From crabs to whales and from bears to eagles and sea lions, you could enjoy meeting many majestic west coast creatures.
You could easily spend days exploring Pacific Rim National Park’s many beaches and trails. If you’re planning a day trip into Tofino, consider renting a bike and riding along the scenic Pacific Rim Highway. You can get off the highway and onto a bike path at various points between Ucluelet and Tofino. It is also possible to use bikes on beaches, but trails are reserved for foot traffic only.
